The Academie de Ballet Classique’s UPPER GRADES-VOCATIONAL BALLET FUNDAMENTALS course follows the safe teaching practices as dictated by the Royal Academy of Dance, whereby students are guided systematically through the building blocks of ballet technique. Build pointe work to a high degree for successful auditions and examinations.
This is a new program to ABCBend, where students focus on specific skill sets to boost their performance to higher levels. Students participating in the Ballet Fundamentals courses will feel the changes as their poise, strength of posture and awareness of balance steadily increases over the years.
This program pairs with our Royal Academy of Dance Examination Courses. Dancers are guided to reach each term’s set goals, so that by the end of the school year, you will see a marked change in ability and assessment scores!
Royal Academy of Dance equivalent: Grades 7, 8 and Vocational Intermediate and Advanced levels.
This course is a requirement for those wishing to take the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Assessment in the Spring. Participation in the RAD program is not a requirement of this course – though we do encourage taking these assessments.
